Volunteer

Thank you for your interest in volunteering. FIRST volunteers play a significant role in the success of the organization while demonstrating the importance of Gracious Professionalism at all times. Volunteers who support FIRST Program Events have the unique and exciting opportunity to watch our young participants learn, invent and collaborate while having competitive fun.

What to Expect:

Below are the event volunteer positions and descriptions for the Utah Regional FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC). These positions are categorized by “Technical” and “Non-Technical” roles. Several of these positions will require the assigned volunteer to participate in pre-event training and/or certification while others will have their training and orientation the Wednesday evening before the event.

Please note that this is a three-day event. Volunteers should plan to be available for all three days Thursday, Friday and Saturday as well as attend an orientation on Wednesday evening (Judges orientation will be held on Thursday and do not need to attend Wednesday’s session). All positions noted below remain open until filled. Please click on a title for the position description and training requirements. When registering, where possible please note several preferences.

Thank you again for considering a volunteer position at the Utah Regional. We welcome you and look forward to working together.
